Understanding participatory theatre for young audiences with special needs: a case study on the response and initiatives by Esplanade and Act 3 Theatrics
This research provides a thorough understanding of the significance of participatory theatre for young audiences with special needs and where it currently resides within Singapore’s arts ecosystem. The research starts with a review of the importance of arts inclusivity in the development of the arts, current initiatives for arts inclusivity in Singapore and initiatives made by the UK and Australia as a guide. Through the point of view of representatives from various arts organisations, the research continues to highlight three general areas of discourse, navigating the positioning of TYA in Singapore, how government support affects the practice of arts inclusivity and changing societal norms through embodied learning. Towards the end, recommendations were given as a response to the discussion mentioned.
